Inktank’s mission is to transform the storage industry by driving the widespread adoption of software-defined storage with Ceph. Founded in 2012 by several creators of Ceph, including Sage Weil, cofounder of DreamHost and Chief Architect of Ceph, Inktank is dedicated to helping organizations fully leverage the transformative power of Ceph to decrease storage costs, increase operational flexibility and help free them from restrictive and expensive proprietary storage systems. Inktank provides best-in-class professional services and support offerings to enterprises, hardware manufacturers, service providers, and cloud platforms.
Traditionally, enterprises have used storage appliances with centralized, scale-up architectures that prevented economies of scale and flexibility in hardware and vendor choice. These solutions no longer work. Ease of administration, reduced cost, and the ability to scale to exabytes can only be achieved with distributed, scale-out architectures based on open-source software, running on commodity hardware. Inktank helps companies manage their storage in ways pioneered by Google and Amazon by delivering enterprise-grade Ceph products and services.
Our goal is to help customers scale their storage to the exabyte level and beyond in a cost-effective way, turning Ceph into the Linux of storage along the way.
